Description:

Located approximately 25 miles north of Seattle, The Future of Flight Aviation Center & Boeing Tour is the only public tour of a commercial jet assembly plant in North America.

Explore the interactive exhibits and displays in our 28,000-square-foot Aviation Center Gallery; then take a 90-minute tour of the Boeing plant where you can watch 747s, 777s, or 787 Dreamliners being assembled right before your eyes.

There is a minimum height requirement of 4 feet (122 cm) for children participating in the Boeing Tour. To avoid disappointment please make sure to check height before purchasing tickets. This restriction is strictly enforced.

ADA accessible tours are offered twice daily. Call in advance to ensure proper accommodations.

In the Future of Flight Aviation Center Gallery, the Family Zone is home to a number of different activities, all designed around a theme of aircraft manufacturing and assembly. Activity carts let visitors build a simple aircraft model, or use our Lego (and Lego-compatible) pieces to express new ideas about aircraft design. A kid-sized airport and aircraft allow future pilots of all ages to practice their take-offs and landings. Currently, the Family Zone is also home to a highly engaging, hands-on nanotechnology exhibit, and our new Bernoulli Table, an exciting interactive experience that teaches the relationship between the velocity of air and the pressure it exerts. Coloring and reading activities are also available, and drop-ins are welcome. Admission is free for ticket holders and for Future of Flight Foundation Members.

Group family event with coworkers. Tour was great and staff is very knowledgeable and courteous! We purchased tickets in advance and the staff was ready for our group of 45. Highly suggest, especially if you are into planes!

They say it's the biggest building in the world, and it must be to have a moving line of brand new 747s and 787s. If you like planes, and admire American manufacturing genius, it's almost a mandatory stop.

While visiting friends I went to the future of flight for what I thought would be an hour or two. Man was I wrong! Spent five hours looking and reading about the history of this place. Had a free tour guide who was a designer of the early drones. This guy was very passionate about his work and proud of... More

Worth the hike. A bit commercial, but genuinely fascinating. The exhibition is a bit of an afterthought however.

We went on a Tuesday so there was active plane-building going on! In the 10 or so minutes we were at the Dreamliner assembly line, we saw one engine being assembled. Since there are already tons of reviews, here are some tips: there are no restrooms on the tour, so go before it starts since the tour is 90 minutes... More

This was my 3rd time to take the factory tour. This time I took my 13 yr. old son. Our guide was super informative and the experience of having a birds-eye view of the manufacturing floor of the largest building in the world; where you'll see how they make the 747, 777, and the 787 (Dreamliner) is something that will...
